The story goes that, in 1975, author Roderick Thorp took a night off from writing to catch a movie. His flick of choice, ‘The Towering Inferno’, is the fictional account of a hulking 138-story structure named The Glass Tower and an electrical fire that traps a gathering of revelers celebrating the building’s opening.
Thorp was enthralled with the storyline involving the tower architect, portrayed by Paul Newman, and his attempt to shuttle a cast of the A-list stars like Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire and OJ Simpson off the 81st floor and down to safety while San Francisco Fire Department Chief Michael O'Hallorhan (played by movie icon Steve McQueen) battles the blaze on the floors below.
It's hard to say whether or not 'Community' could ever live up to its promise of "Six Seasons and a Movie," but the latest promo for 'Community' season 4 is certainly a good start. In advance of the long-anticipated February 7 premiere, 'Community' has taken to doing what it does best, parodying movies in their 'A Good Day to Die Hard'-style teaser of the upcoming season. What season 4 secrets are revealed within? New 'Community' scoop inside!
Look, we know that the odds are against 'A Good Day to Die Hard' being anywhere in the same league as the first 'Die Hard,' but still, we can be hopeful. And if nothing else, the release of the fifth film has done something cool. On February 13 in select cinemas, all four previous 'Die Hard' films will be showing in lead up to the first screenings of the new film.
